Loaded Squash Skins

Another great recipe from my favorite chef, George Stella.  This is from his Real Food, Real Easy cookbook.  I made this recently for Super Bowl.  The recipe yields 12 skins and serves 6. They have 3.5 net carbs per serving.


  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 6 small to medium yellow squash
  • salt and pepper
  • onion powder
  • 3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 4 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/3 cup light sour cream
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Cut ends off yellow squash, then cut each in half lengthwise.  Scoop out some of the squash’s center.  Place the halves cut side up on baking sheet.
  3. Sprinkle squash liberally with salt, pepper and onion powder.  Next, top each with an even amount of the Cheddar cheese and crumbled bacon.
  4. Bake 12-14 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly and squash has a little bit of give to the touch.  Serve garnished with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkling of sliced green onion.

Yum!  ♥
